Intel reveals details of the 12th generation of Core SoC for Edge applications • History – Yalla Match

Intel made a version of its 12th generation processor optimized for edge and Internet of Things applications. Dedicated chips claim to enable smaller form factor designs, while AI inference performance allows data to be analyzed at the edge.

According to Intel, the newest member of the Alder Lake family, the 12th-generation Intel Core SoC for edge IoT (formerly Alder Lake PS) processors combine the performance profile and power envelope of mobile chips, but fall short of LGA's for a desktop The chips, it also has elastic in the socket. This means that they can be installed directly on the system board or socket and easily replaced.

Delivered as a multi-chip package, the new processor combines Alder Lake cores with an integrated platform controller (PCH) that provides integrated I/O capabilities and integrated Iris Xe graphics with up to 96 GPUs.

This new edge chipset ranges in core power from 15W to 45W, with the 15W part featuring up to 10 CPU cores and the 45W part featuring 8 to 14 cores. Up to 6 of these cores are multi-threaded performance cores (P-cores) and up to 8 are efficient single-threaded cores (E-cores).

It also features the Intel Thread Director feature introduced in Alder Lake, which monitors thread performance to ensure workloads are mapped to the correct cores.

Intel claims that its 12th-generation Intel Core SoC processors for Edge IoT will be up to 1.32x faster in single-threaded performance and up to 1.27x faster in multi-threaded performance than 10th-generation desktop chips. a plus.

Inferentially, these 96 GPUs enable chip makers to significantly balance AI workloads for edge data analysis, while CPU cores are designed to speed up AI processing, and they also claim to have Intel Deep Learning Boost instructions on board. The chip maker added that the OpenVINO toolkit for developing such applications is fully supported on the new chip.

The new processors are designed for a wide range of vertical industries, Jenny Banhurst, vice president and general manager of Intel Network and Edge Computing, said in a statement.

“As the digitization of business processes continues to accelerate, the amount of data generated at the edge and the need to process and analyze it locally continues to increase,” she said.

Another key advantage of managing systems deployed in edge scenarios is that these processors include Intel vPro capabilities, including wired remote management capabilities at the silicon level. Apply the patch or restart the platform.

The chip will support up to 8 PCIe 4.0 lanes and 4 Thunderbolt 4 / USB4 lanes, support up to 64GB of DDR5 or DDR4 memory, and the graphics are expected to offer four 4K displays or one 8K display. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2021 support includes Long Term Service Channel (LTSC) and Linux options.

According to Intel, the new SoCs will target a wide range of industries, including point-of-sale clusters for retail, banking and hospitality, industrial computers and consoles for manufacturing, as well as healthcare. ®
